Ilam Petrochemical Plant is banking on inauguration of its sulfur recovery unit (SRU) by the end of the current calendar year to March 20, the managing director of the facility said.
Farhad Daneshi said the facility is now building two units which are olefin and SRU of which the latter will come online before the end of the current calendar year to March 20.
He said SRU is one of the preliminary units in production chain and plays a key role in feedstock supply for olefin production.
He said the project has made 78% physical progress and most of the machinery and equipment needed for completion of the unit has been installed or supplied.
He further said the project has generated jobs for 3,000 for the western Ilam Province locals.
The plant has so far supplied 520,000 tons of polyolefin and is expected to supply 200,000 tons of the product next year.
